omen’s museums and memorials strive to bring focus to the impact women have made in all walks of life. The merchandise sold at the museum gift shops reflect that mission and give visitors the opportunity to take home a reminder of what these groundbreaking women were all about.

While most people remember Harriet Beecher Stowe as the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, few realize that she was also an artist, activist and gardener. At the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford, Conn., visitors can witness this woman’s many contributions when they walk through her home and view the historical collections housed there. Apparel and accessory items available in the gift shop allow guests to combine a sense of fashion and fun with a sense of history.

“Our museum receives about 27,000 guests per year and most are women between the ages of 45 and 65,” said Shannon Burke, director of education and visitor services. “We get a great deal of foreign guests who have read her work. They come to learn about Harriet Beecher Stowe, and they love to bring home a fun remembrance of their visit. ”
